Very capable, the sliders and skids work great and they LSDs work like a champ with stock tires. it should work be a champ as long as you don't go to crazy. i did some hard stuff with my when it was stock with bald tires. Get some ATs and you'll be set

If you go offroad....chances are you will damage something...either get a scratch on it from a limb, a few scratches from some rocks on your wheels, a few scuffs on your slide rails...but the biggest thing on these WJ's are the low Front bumpers. It rally seems to get hit abit if your line is not perfect or if you slide off of an obstacle. Just put a little money back that way if you break something you can upgrade it or get a set of factory JK wheels and put them on to offroad with so you can keep your factory wheels nice.
Also, go with a group or join a club so you have experienced people helping you out. Good Luck
Mine is completely stock and I've driven it on some pretty interesting trails to say the least but I've never had any problems, just scratched the paint up but hey it happens. Just be smart about it, I wouldn't take it rock crawling or submerge it in the huge mud pits and all that crazy stuff, I just stick with the trails and it's very capable.
the mud flap removal mod would greatly help your chances offroad, and getting a chick in the sack
